Stem Cells Using stem cells To replicate organs

Scientists are getting closer to being able to produce successful organs.

They can even use skin stem cells in order to make miniature livers/kidney buds

They are able to take the skin cells and put them in an embryonic state

They need tens of thousands of kidney buds to work

But like normal kidney transplants they'd need to take some immune suppressing drugs in order to accept the kidney

As time goes on more and more people have kidney and liver failures

We are able to now produce this kind of stuff because we have the technology to, it has given us this opportunity
